Alterraun Verner, Jason McCourty Proving to be Strong Pass Defending Duo

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 12, 2013 – 12:38 pm

_N8U4391Starting cornerbacks Alterraun Verner and Jason McCourty are on the verge of recording the most combined passes defensed by a pair of Titans defenders in the “Titans era” (1999 to present).

According to tallies from the team’s coaching staff, which awards statistics upon film review each week, Verner leads the club with 23 passes defensed, the most by a Titans defender in the last 15 seasons. (Verner is credited with a league-high 20 passes defensed according “press box statistics.”)

Meanwhile, McCourty ranks second on the team with 13 passes defensed, giving the tandem a total of 36 passes defensed through 13 games. With two more, they will surpass the total of 37 passes defensed by Cortland Finnegan (20) and Nick Harper (17) in 2008, which stands as the high mark in the Titans era.

1. 37 in 2008 – Cortland Finnegan (20), Nick Harper (17)
2. 36 in 2013 – Alterraun Verner (23), Jason McCourty (13) - Three games remaining

7. 29 in 2001 – Andre Dyson (15), Samari Rolle (14)
8. 28 in 2010 – Alterraun Verner (15), Jason McCourty (13)

    I still say we have to do whatever it takes to keep Verner in Nashville.
